Literally. Raf Simon’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 haute couture collection for Dior is filled with silhouettes inspired by court fashion of yore (think voluminous skirts with side hoops).
It’s interesting to see how he interpreted 18th century style to fit with today’s context. Fresh and unique!
While the rest of the world braces for a white wintry spectacle, it’s been rain, rain and MORE rain all month long here. These pretty handmade couture umbrellas from Parasolerie Heurtault might just tempt someone into braving the gloomy weather. From top, Bagatelle embroidered parasol featuring a carved mahagony handle, Colette haute couture umbrella and Albert men’s brolly.
Lace and frills — Ayako waterproof silk haute couture parasol, La Parisienne frilly shade, Brighton black sunshade, Biarritz embroidered UV treated sun shade, Grace haute couture umbrella in white taffetta white black Chantilly lace.
Garden Plissé umbrella with hypnotic pattern. Transparent brollies, Neptune, in black and stripes.
Bridal parasols (ombrelles mariage) — Isabelle, Longchamps, Morgane and Opera. More designs from Parasolerie Heurtault by Michel Heurtault here.
What’s pretty, pink with bows all over? Valentino Haute Couture Fall 2010/2011 collection. A lot of adorable details in this collection!
A short and sweet suit in dusty pink. Mmmm…
I’m totally love this black and white outfit and oooh, the half gloves with large bows on them — so lovely!
A lovely strapless gown that is neither pink nor adorned with bows. :)
